The OnePlus One has had a couple of pre-order windows now and is selling well despite still being a very limited handset in terms of availability. The smartphone that shook things up with its high end specs and affordable price tag is still not purchasable in many regions. However, India is about to get the OnePlus One and it will be sold through Amazon in the country.The OnePlus has been hugely successful despite a number of massive setbacks throughout this year. Interestingly, the company makes no profit of the handset and founder Carl Pei says the Chinese brand would have been pleased moving 100,000 One handsets in 2014. The device has surpassed expectations by selling more than 500,000 units, while OnePlus now says it will push to sell 1 million by the end of the year. Launching the device in India, the second most populous country in the world, will surely will help that, as will partnering with Amazon. However, only 11% of all Indian smartphone sales are conducted online, so OnePlus is giving its device a boost by running a competition to win one of its famous invites to buy the handset. Here's what the company has to say on the matter:
